Building Information Modeling (BIM)
SANHA provides BIM data for a wide range of our piping systems. Building Services Engineers and Designers can chose between the Revit (AutoDesk) or VDI 3805 formats. With these two options, pipe network layouts can be displayed in a standardised 3D format and project progress can be documented across the entire location.
With the BIM product data, we provide technical planners with a flexible and practical solution for the design of piping systems for heating, cooling, ventilation and drinking water installations as well as for industrial projects. The data is available for all relevant SANHA systems in Revit format. It includes pipeline systems made of stainless steel (NiroSan® and NiroTherm®), C-steel (SANHA®-Therm), copper (SANHA®-Press) as well as the special lead-free drinking water series PURAPRESS® and 3fit® pb-free and PPSU fittings for multilayer pipes.
Bill of materials, easy team collaboration
In addition to the CAD data, extensive technical product information such as dimensions, weight, Z dimensions or thread type - all of which are required in the BIM planning process - can be easily accessed with the programme. For installers, an accurate bill of materials available at an early stage enables much better planning across the whole supply chain.
For international teams working on large projects, all SANHA product data can be transferred to other team members at the push of a button. The necessary files, instruction manual and a short demonstration video are available on the portal
An easy registration process is all that is required to access and download the Revit files and a video explains the main functions.

Setting a standard
In the absence of any approved standard for BIM files, our developer Stabiplan has established a European MEP content standard. This standard determines the level of information required by all manufactures, to ensure a consistent and correct BIM output delivery. The relevant document draws from all existing documentation and standards such as VDI 3805 and draft ISO16757, to bring together a meaningful and important document, especially for all those companies developing specific BIM Apps.

BIM magazine and Webinars
Stabiplan have also published a monthly guide to BIM, called SCRATCH, which contains interesting case studies and applications. To subscribe to this magazine please click the following button
As part of their collaboration with SANHA, Stabiplan have a series of Webinars on their applications, transparently showcasing the considerable benefits of BIM. To express an interest in this please contact us here.
